He's a Christmas corker! 12lb baby is the biggest to be born at a hospital in a decade
  • Brodey Young was born on Tuesday in hospital in Grimsby weighing 12lb 13oz
  • He is the heaviest baby delivered at the Princess of Wales Hospital in 10 years
  • Parents Sheralyn and Robert say there were no abnormalities during pregnancy 

    The family of the heaviest baby born at a hospital in a decade, tipping the scales nearly 13lb, is celebrating his arrival just in time for http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/christmas/index.html" id="mol-bf91b740-e26d-11e7-8ff3-af3f1f8e9a22" style="font-weight: bold;">Christmas.

    Brodey Young was born on Tuesday morning on the Blueberry Ward at Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital in Grimsby. 

    He weighed in at 12lb 130z - nearly the same as a bowling bowl, stunning midwives, doctors and his mother Sheralyn Wilcock.

    The mother-of-three, of Cleethorpes, said: 'I felt light and I could feel the difference in pressure when he was coming out.

    'I knew he was going to be a big baby but you don't know just how big until you see him and hold him. It's amazing.'

    Ms Wilcock said there were no abnormalities during her pregnancy that suggested Brodey would be so heavy, but explained that her other two children, Bailey Hemsley and Payton Young, were also larger than anticipated when they were born.

    Bailey, now 18, weighed 10lbs 2oz and two-year-old Payton weighed over 8lbs 15oz when she was delivered. 

    Despite only being a few days old, Brodey is already filling his zero to three-months babygrows and is drinking 70ml of milk every three or four hours.

    The average for a new-born is between 20ml and 40ml. 

     

    Ms Wilcock , who was supported during her cesarean delivery by partner Robert Young, added: 'The pregnancy itself was all textbook. I have had big births before.

    'The midwife estimated that Brodey would weigh between 9lbs and 12lbs and they were absolutely spot on.

    'During the pregnancy it was just baby weight that I put on which is quite unusual. The bump was huge and whenever I went shopping people would stop and say: 2Oh my God, look at it!'

    'We knew he was going to be big by looking at the scans. Some of the measurements they did were off the chart.'

    A spokesman at the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Trust confirmed Brodey was the heaviest baby born at Grimsby hospital in the past ten years. The previous record of the decade was a 12lbs 3oz baby born in 2014. 

    The parents say they are just happy that Brodey, who measured 63cm when he was born, is healthy and has been delivered in time for Christmas.

    Ms Wilcock added: 'He was four days early and I had to go in for cesarean, which was quite daunting because I had never had one before. 

    'They told us it had to be cesarean because otherwise it can get quite dangerous.

    'We're used to drama. Our daughter Payton was delivered at home by Robert because she couldn't wait. We don't do things by half!'

    She added: 'The whole team at the hospital from the surgeons, midwives, nurses were all excellent.

    'When I saw him I cried. I got dead emotional. It's nice to bring him back home in time for Christmas.'

Why oh why do I have to read things several times for them to make sense?

He weighed in at 12lb 130z - nearly the same as
a bowling bowl,
stunning midwives,
doctors
and his mother Sheralyn Wilcock.

Sounded like a child's bowling ball and very lightweight anorexic people.

Ok, so the midwives weren't stunning, just run of the mill?

You have to sorta sing your way through it, Corn...

On  the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me: a bowling ball, stunning midwives, doctors and his mother Sheralyn Wilcox.

Actually I don't do Sheralyn's or any other females or mothers. Would you like me to send you the midwives and the mother? Anyone? And all the bowling alleys around here closed a couple of decade ago so I don't need the bowling ball either. And the doctors aren't covered in my health insurance's preferred providers plan so those got to go too.  I think I'll get rid of my true love who sent me this shit while I am at it.

Idea: i'll just sent it all to Porky the Newborn. Should be enough to feed him for a day or two. Ah, feeding the hungry. Now i have done my share of charity for Christmas.

(Bet you weren't able to get through all of this either, Corn eh?)


Merry Christmas!

A gift you wished you'd have no doubt! I wouldn't expect a bird to read, let alone type. You are an amazing feat of poultry evolution.
